Why Coding for Kids?

What do Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have in common in their educational backgrounds? They all had exposure to technology as kids.

Studies show that kids decide as early as ages 7-12 whether they will continue to consider careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) or if they will write it off entirely. The key is a positive exposure to STEM.

85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet (Dell). By learning coding, kids will be prepared for anything and will become the innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

Coding, Minecraft and robotics are also very fun for kids, and a great opportunity for them to learn core technical and social-emotional skills along the way. Kids have so much fun they don’t realize how much they are learning!

Advanced Minecraft

Enchantments

Amy

Enchantments are basically just a way to add a tag to an item that can include a level value. It can be used to add procedures to run when different enchanted things interact with the world.

Beginner Minecraft

Singing Merry Go Round

John

A minecraft cart that travels forever in a circle via powered rails. The movement of the cart can also serve as a redstone clock and generate redstone pulses via detector rails when a cart goes over them. You can then use these detector rail signals to power outputs such as lights, noteblocks, and pistons.

Beginner Robotics

LED Catch

Astrid

Astrid used the coded an LED to move back and forth across the bottom of the matrix via button presses. She also added an LED that falls from the top and attempt to catch it.

Intermediate Robotics

Theremin

Arman

Arman wired up a light sensor that responds to light level. This reading is then converted to be appropriate for the sound of a buzzer, as well as other outputs.

Beginner Robotics

Musical Keyboard

Ira

Ira wired up a virtual speaker and multiple buttons to create their own musical keyboard. Pressing different buttons triggers different notes allowing them to play a song or just jam out.

Intermediate Robotics

Big Mouth Billy Bass

Henry

Henry wired up a virtual motion sensor (PIR = passive infrared sensor which outputs a digital signal when it detects motion (via a change in infrared input). By wiring up outputs, when it detects motion it can play sound a la Big Mouth Billy Bass (the singing mounted fish).

The original tech programs for kids

MakerKids founded the first makerspace for kids in the world in 2010, and went on to pioneer an industry and transform education. Today, kids can access MakerKids’ award-winning programs on Coding. Minecraft and Robotics from the comfort of their own home.

We’ve been invited to give talks about our work around the world, at SXSW, MakerCon, Maker Faire, TEDx and more. We have also written a book about our work, called Every Child A Maker – as well as a children’s book called The MakerKid.

We’ve trained educators and helped school boards and libraries implement makerspaces.

We’ve run programs for Google and Twitter, for their employees’ kids.

Your child will experience award-winning curriculum built by engineers, entrepreneurs, and graduates of the Singularity University program at NASA, and refined over 11+ years.

Our CEO’s Story:

From bullied and disengaged to thriving entrepreneur

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I am the CEO of MakerKids.
Has your child ever felt excluded? When I was 12 years old, I was being bullied and was disengaged at school. Then my teacher said that for my book report project, I should make a website. So I taught myself how to code, and made a website about Harry Potter. A few months later I found out my website had hundreds of thousands of views and was featured in a magazine. This was a very empowering moment for me – suddenly the bullying didn’t impact me as much, and I became more engaged at school. Later on, I was selected for a program based at NASA called Singularity University, where I learned how to apply technology to education. It was afterwards that I got started with MakerKids, with the goal of helping more kids have transformative experiences like I had as a kid. We’re excited that thousands of kids have gone through the programs and some have started businesses, been featured on TV, and had positive mental health outcomes. We hope to meet your family soon.
-Jennifer Turliuk
